We are obsessed with the bold flavor of Art of Pecan's Pure Pecan Oil, which retains all of its nutty aroma and tastes like fresh pecans in liquid form: buttery and sweet up front, with a subtle pleasant bitterness toward the finish to balance the richness of the oil. this limited-production product is made from native Texas pecans that have a more intense flavor and natural sweetness than other varieties. Once a year, the company partners with Texas ranches to access their land and shake a new crop of pecans from their trees. The Art of Pecan then expeller-presses the pecans at peak freshness at a dedicated mill in Dripping Springs, Texas.
Light-bodied with a clean—not cloying—finish, this oil is ideal as a finishing touch on all kinds of dishes. While Pure Pecan Oil has a higher smoke point than peanut and soybean oil for cooking, we recommend you use it raw to fully appreciate its flavor. Try it for a rich, nutty addition to pasta dishes, or use it in conjunction with olive oil to upgrade your pesto, such as in our Rigatoni with Ricotta-Sage Pesto. We also like a bit of this oil on our Gemelli Pasta with Chevre, Arugula and Walnuts to amplify the nutty flavors and balance the goat cheese in this recipe. The Art of Pecan's Pure Pecan Oil is also ideal for salad dressings, especially those that feature the nuts themselves. Try substituting it for olive oil in our Shaved Pear and Endive Salad with Blue Cheese and Pecans or Apple and Fennel Salad with Candied Pecans. On the sweet side, brush pecan oil on our French Walnut Tart before serving for a lustrous sheen and added aroma—since walnuts and pecans are in the same family, The Art of Pecan's oil can enhance the flavor of both nuts. You can also drizzle pecan oil on our Maple-Whiskey Pudding Cakes for more complexity and warm richness.
